Eco-Committee Completes Local Litter Pick

The Eco-Committee at MTBS is currently working on the Marine Topic to contribute towards our Green Flag Award. We decided to carry out a litter pick as part of the ‘World Tomorrow Today’ programme.

On Wednesday morning, 19 Year 10 students plus Miss Jones and Ms Robinson went to Victoria Park to carry out our litter pick. In half an hour the students managed to collect 12kg of litter between them! We found mostly plastic bottles and food packaging although we did find some odd items such as a dog bowl and some socks! This litter was then sorted and will be sent back to the manufacturers to be disposed of.

The students have all agreed that this activity increased their awareness of litter issues in the area and have agreed that they will be less likely to both litter and use single use plastics in the future. Thank you to Jayne Rigby from Surfers Against Sewage and Angela Griffiths from Green Sefton for their provision of equipment and knowledge to help make this a success!

Well done to all students who took part!
